And that is where you are WRONG. A virus is a peice of malicious code that SELF replicates itself.
This does not do that, nor does it do anything close; therefore it is not a virus. If you want more proof, pop up good ol' google and research what a computer virus is
Its like two doctors scrabbling over the name of a disease. All I care about is how it affects me.
If this thing steals your information, then it is a virus!
